2018 HALL Jack's Masterpiece Cabernet Sauvignon
"Opaque purple-black colored, the barrel sample of 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Jack's Masterpiece comes bounding out of the glass with exuberant black cherries, warm plums and mulberries scents plus hints of baking spices, lilacs and fallen leaves with a waft of tree bark. Full-bodied, expressive and with loads of juicy black fruits, it has a firm, grainy texture and just enough freshness, finishing savory."
Our Jack’s Masterpiece comes from many vineyard sources and appellations, but tends to be dominated by mountain fruit. Vineyards planted in mountain terrains produce vines smaller in stature but with more concentrated grapes. These grapes provide the basis for the dense, powerful structure of this wine. Our goal is to capture the flavors of dark black fruit mixed with powerful, chewy tannins, and a focused palate.

|Vintage Notes||This near perfect growing season began in late February. Our Spring weather was mild, and allowed for extended flowering that produced very uniform grape clusters. Temperatures throughout Napa remained steady and warm during the majority of summer and fall, without any heat spikes, making for a long and unhurried harvest. The resulting wines are incredibly smooth and polished, with magnificent texture and color.|
